It is a well-balanced and structured wine, which is a perfect match for grilled and roasted meats, as well as aged cheeses.
Fermentation takes place with maceration (skin contact) for approximately 20 days, at temperatures between 25 and 28°C. Malolactic fermentation is completed in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in used French oak barrels (used for 1-2 years) for 12 months.
